Here are my paintings from my weekend Cold Wax painting workshop. Some of them I really like. Some of them I don’t. Some of them are finished (enough). Some of them will be reworked.
Today I stopped by the hardware store and had more wood cut to do more painting. This painting really was a relaxing experience and I am looking forward to doing more of it. Surprisingly, I don’t really care what they look like. I’m suspending judgement. I’m fine with being a noob (newbie) at this process. Perhaps I’m getting better at ’embracing suckiness’? Who knows.
Next step is to have Mr. W sand my wood canvases (he has a new sander to play with) and then gesso the surface to prep for paint. I’m also waiting for my soft brayer to arrive. This soft brayer is the key to giving the soft look to the paintings.
